about

Original version appeared on the album If The Dust Was Your Feelings, I Guess I Was On My Own, released June 18, 2018.

lyrics

Warhol Campbell childhood
Chiseled pistol, shoot; you should
Monster movie, really scared
Played a game of truth or dare

Boat shoes, tallboy, snapback
Best defense is a good attack
Out with the boys feeling bare
Bullies won't get outta your hair

Naked feelings of my guilt
Parallel to the home you built
I can't live up to that dream
The expectation I stay clean

Don't forget my betrayal
Deception was beyond the pale
Covered up with pretty myth
The lie you fell in love with

Better not to think about it
A lot of good that would do
Dust in the wind, dusk inside
Your deepest feelings felt so true

I wrote a little song about
Whether we had our whole life knit
How our fingers twine together
How are love got so lit

The better it gets, the slower I show
Every piece of moral fibre
Examining every piece, I go
I guess we couldn't get much higher

No one comes to the same conclusion
I made a side bet
The moral is a clever illusion
The rules left you soaking wet
